Biden Admin Pays Guttmacher Institute $594K to Study "Impact" of Pro-life Laws

On September 5, the Biden administration's National Institutes of Health (NIH) awarded $594,163 to the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute to conduct a study on the “impact of new state restrictions on abortion incidence and safety.”

The Guttmacher Institute was founded in 1968 as the research arm of Planned Parenthood. It has changed its name over the years, but it still maintains its pro-abortion roots. The organization's current name comes from former Planned Parenthood President Dr. Alan F. Guttmacher.

The NIH project description states that it will last until August 2024, after which the Guttmacher Institute will deliver “baseline data to capture the impact of state abortion restrictions expected over the coming months on the health of pregnant people as well as the need for high-quality estimates of abortion incidence both within and outside of the formal health care system.” 

Biden's administration also says the study will collect "data on facility-based and self-managed abortions to estimate the national incidence of abortion and abortion-related health outcomes."

Given the bent perspectives of both the Biden administration and the Guttmacher Institute, any conclusions to come from this study will surely support their pro-abortion beliefs. This study will use taxpayer dollars to further the goals of pro-abortion activists.
